This letter got published and I think it helps to write about other subjects of topical interest which can be linked to some aspect of climate, as editors seem unwilling to use climate sceptic letters.

 “I would like to commend all MPs who voted to reduce our overseas aid budget in the light of the dire financial situation the country now faces.  Our debt is now so high that we would actually have to borrow the money to give it away. Would any of us behave in this way as individuals, of course not. Those who would like to make an extra personal donation have the opportunity to do so via charities.

When the Conservative manifesto was written no one could have foreseen the pandemic and the vast expenditure needed. It would be equally foolish to continue with the policy of reducing our CO2 emissions to net zero by 2050, while other nations, such as China and India are not doing the same. The government has told us that the estimated cost of this is £1.4 trillion pounds, while our emissions represent just 0.9% of world emissions. A huge expenditure for no significant gain.”
